Depends on your preference; anode rods or soft plastic drain plugs.

I'll take the soft plastic drain plug any day !

We don't need to ever change a anode on our residential water heaters, so why should we have to in a RV

Guy


Standard tank-style residential water heaters do have anode rods, and one is well-advised to replace them as they get consumed so that the tank doesn't rust out and start leaking too soon. How rapidly they are consumed or caked up in deposits does, of course, depend a good deal on the nature of one's water supply.

We are lucky - we have an Atwood and the backside is accessible from the inside via a fake 2 door cabinet at floor level. Can work on it from either side easily.

Having owned three truck campers and three 5th wheel rv trailers since '68 to present I like the brand that came in it.

Like which brand of truck do you like. I like the one I own.

A tip of the hat to the OP for correctly calling it a Water Heater instead of a Hot Water Heater. (If the water is hot, then it doesn't need to be heated.)

Actually the water gets reheated at 110*F which can be considered hot
